Ricoh today announced that it has been recognised in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI World) 2020, one of the world’s most renowned indices for ESG (environmental, social, and governance) performance.
The DJSI, compiled by the U.S. firm S&P Dow Jones, is the first global sustainability index to assess a company’s corporate sustainability from its economic, environmental, and social performance. The process is considered most stringent based on the number of questions and the depth of information required.
This year’s DJSI World Index list includes 323 companies following a review of approximately 3,500. Ricoh was ranked second out of 33 companies in the Computers & Peripherals and Office Electronics industry and obtained the industry’s best score in 11 categories: Codes of Business Conduct, Supply Chain Management, Tax Strategy, Information Security, Innovation Management, Environmental Reporting, Environmental Policy & Management Systems, Climate Strategy, Social Reporting, Human Rights and Human Capital Development.
As well as being added to DJSI World Index, the DJSI Asia/Pacific Index has included Ricoh for the last three consecutive years.
Ricoh has identified seven material issues, set 14 ESG priority targets, and incorporated them into the Group’s business strategies. Ricoh will contribute to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals agreed upon by the international community by solving social issues through business and realising a sustainable society.
